On Saturday March 26, 2011 I was scheduled to speak at a visiting church where a friend of mine is pastor who was having a Preach-A-Thon . Prior to the day I was feeling fine and had been fine all the while other than having previous headaches here and there, but never thought much of them. Ok so I go on about my day as usual. Around 1pm that afternoon I said to my husband that I was going to lay down and take a nap before having to get to the church because I wasn't scheduled to speak until 5:55pm that evening. So as I was trying to get to my bed it seemed that something (God) kept me busy doing other things where I never got to lay down, so around 2pm I decided to get dressed and just go on over to the church so I could hear the other preachers speak, ok so I get dressed and get to the church all is well, the pastor gets me settled in and then gets me to my seat in the pulpit, as we the other ministers are listening to the minister that was up speaking after being there seating in my seat not more than 15 minutes, I began to feel funny all of a sudden I get this excruciating pain on both sides of my neck and then in the center of my neck from my brain stem down my back to the tailbone, I immediately place both my hands on my neck hoping the pain would subside, but it didn't then I began to feel tingling in both my hands, arms, and down my legs to the point I'm nervous about what is happening, then I began to get nauseated and slightly dizzy so I tap the person seated next to me, asking them to get the pastor's attention, I told him I was sick and needed to be ushered out, he takes me to his office where the pain only intensified so after a few minutes of trying to get myself together and nothing was happening I told the deacon to call EMS as I called my husband.
The EMS team came and got me to the nearest hospital which was Sinai Grace which is one of thee worst hospitals in the state of Michigan and in the metropolitan Detroit area. Ok so I get to the hospital emergency room the team was very incompetent they had no clue what to do for me, they begin to guess after having me lay there for an hour and a half in severe pain, they only got the ball rolling when my two sisters who are R.N's got there and began to fuss And complain about the length of time I had been there and they not even started an I.V or attempted to do a CT Scan due to my issues. Ok so after my sisters had their say, a doctor says he wanted to have me go for a spinal-tap, in which no one ever spoke to my husband about, not even getting his or my permission and they attempted to do so twice and was unsuccessful, so they gave me pain meds to knock me out.
After my family saw the incompentcy of the staff they pulled me out of that hospital, told my daughters to take me home with them and to get me to another hospital first thing in the morning, because of insurance purposes they couldn't take me from one hospital right to another,
ok so we go to my daughters home, I laid in pain for most of the night so early the next morning around 6am they got me to Beaumont Hospital where they immediately assessing my problem and knew exactly what to do so they got the ball rolling right away. After putting in an I.V, doing all my vials and giving me a CAT-Scan they saw that I had a bleed from my brain so they did an MRI as well as a Spinal-Tap. I was admitted right away to the hospital. The spinal tap had a bloody show where as the fluid should have been clear, and they SCAT-Scan showed a small area in the brain where I had been bleeding from, but thanks be to God it wasn't an Aneurysm or a stroke because they ruled that out, Glory to God. But they couldn't figure out what happened and why it happened. They kept me for (5) days but never could come up with a solution as to why I had the bleed, but is concerned that it could happened again so they sent me home with (3) different meds to take for the headaches and said for me to take it easy no strenuous activities, nor allow stressful situations to get to me, for me to keep still and rest. The doctor even said I may need to think about working part time if work at all. Ok so now I'm home for a day or two and all the dilaudid that they had pumped into my system has worn off and I am now feeling the effects of what happened to me, I have issues with walking and standing. Even when I sit for a while my buttocks hurts and I get this pain rushing down my legs and in my buttocks. I need assistance in walking and I still have the headaches. I have called the doctor that over saw my case while in the hospital and I have an appointment with him tomorrow.
Now a few days prior to any of this happening to me I remember hearing the Holy Spirit say to me:
"A drastic change is going to happen with you."
Now I never anticipated anything like this happening but what I did say was Lord if you said it, it has got to come to pass. I'm still trying to understand it as well as except all of what is happening to me, but I know God is with me through it all. I am trying to understand the lesson in this as well as the reasoning behind it, but I have yet come to know the answers to it all. But God!
I know for one I was working in a very stressful environment and that there were so many people against me and I was carrying a lot on me trying to do my job to the best of my ability. There is so much politics going on in the workplace until it just makes one not want to come to work, but I remained faithful to my residents as well as my employer. My doctor has said I may need to think of working part time if work at all and that is a huge decision for me because I love what I do and I love to work, I’m not one to just sit around and do nothing, but maybe this is God’s way of getting me to a place where I can sit and finish my book he has given me the inspiration to do and finish, I will have to pray on the subject of not working, but I do feel better, but just concerned about these pains and spasms I have in the lower parts of my body.
I first want to give all praise, honor and glory to God for bring me out of that dark place, then to give YOU ALL, my deepest thanks and gratitude for your show of love and concern for me. Thank you Annie123 for keeping up with me and posting for the ladies to know my status you are a true sweetheart, if I could I would send you all on a tropical retreat just to show my thanks for your love and friendship, but just hug yourselves and know that it is from me I shall keep you all in my thoughts and prayers and know that I'm here and God is NOT finished with me yet! God fore saw what the enemy was setting up for me God was warning me of this thing.
What the devil meant for evil, God turned it around for my good.
